International Law and Politics - LLM

From issues of identity, ethics, peace and security, to the distribution of wealth, trade and power, international law and politics are forever interlinked. This LLM examines the complex interplay between aspects of international life: how world politics shape international law and how, in return, international law shapes and controls the behaviour and authority of states in their dealings with one another and with other actors. Using this knowledge to promote and strengthen the interests of any future employer or client, it prepares you for careers with international institutions like the UN, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), government agencies or international law firms.
